The Ritz Carlton has a great location across the street from the beach. You can go to the lobby and cross at the cross walk or take the walk way from the pool level and take the elevator down. The pool overlooks the ocean so you can lay out by the pool and see the sand and surf without getting sandy. Pool had free water and even suntan lotion - nice touch. Rooms are great and I think they all have a balcony. There are many pubs, restaurants and shops within walking distance.
My biggest complaint is that the hotel does not have free coffee or a coffee maker in the rooms. It is a little thing, but I expect coffee from my hotels. There is also a charge for the internet.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale infuses the Gold Coast with casual luxury as the city's first and only AAA Five Diamond hotel. The 24-story, dramatically tiered and glass walled structure has sweeping curves that are reminiscent of a luxury liner. Design elements recall the 1940's, with artwork that includes playful murals inspired by French artist Jean Cocteau and a 13-foot high mural of a seascape inspired by the 1880 painting, "King Neptune and His Horses." The property features 192 guest rooms and suites; a 2,200 square foot Club Lounge, 24,000 square feet of light-filled meeting space; a 29,000 square foot oceanfront sundeck with an infinity pool and private cabanas; destination Spa with an organic and active-botanical treatment menu and a water-view fitness center. Four dining and entertainment options include the new Via Luna Italian grill with seating indoors or al fresco on an oceanfront patio, the dramatic oceanfront Via Luna Bar, a private Wine Room with a 5,000 bottle wine cellar and a seventh floor Poolside Cafe with commanding ocean views. ... more less
